Food is an important part of a balanced diet.
— Fran Liebowitz
There was an item in this morning’s commuter paper (an offshoot of the Washington Post) on Mia Farrow’s hunger strike to raise awareness about the situation in Darfur. Here’s what it said:
Mia Farrow ended her 21-day hunger strike for Darfur nine days early, People [Magazine] reported. “I just got weaker and weaker,” she said. By Friday, her blood sugar had dropped dangerously low, and she found it difficult to stand. “I was very disappointed,” she says.
Now, look, I understand that the point of the item is that she didn’t last the full 21 days that she intended to, but honestly, what exactly did she think was going to happen when she STOPPED EATING?
